Well, fam, I just discovered an unpleasant truth. Which is that KDP doesn’t do preorders for paperback versions of a title. So, if I publish the Ryswyck paperback, it goes live right then, and leaves my e-book twisting in the wind till Memorial Day. Damn! So here’s what I’m going to do. If I can
Happy Friday to all you cats and kittens! I am about to go out and have some beer with my church, because that is how we roll, one Friday a month anyway. But before I do that, I will announce: we have achieved mappage! Tori McDonald was both kind enough and intrepid enough to expand
Look what came today! I’ve already changed the document since ordering this proof, but I’m not sorry because holding this book is amazing. I am so stoked, in case the pic doesn’t give that away. Just a few more ducks to line up and then the paperback, too, will go up for preorder. Stay tuned!
For all you cats and kittens who buy your ebooks on Kindle, Ryswyck is now available for preorder in the Kindle Store! The paperback is soon to follow; I’ve got the document in process. Order now to take advantage of the advance price, and your book will be delivered on Memorial Day. Exciting!

Had a beta chat re: “Household Lights” today, which reminded me of this amusing incident tangentially involving one of my other beta readers…. One evening last month, I was at a friend’s house for dinner with the spouse of one of my betas, and as we were going to our cars and waving goodbye to
Mark your calendars for Memorial Day: Ryswyck will be released in ebook and print on May 27, 2019! I’m excited! And great thanks are due to Beth Leggett, who was gracious enough to take my commission and did a hero’s work producing the cover art. Preorder information for Ryswyck is pending, so watch this space.
Further to my last, I heard back from the SET Game customer service. It turns out they have decided to remove QRE from the dictionary of valid words altogether. So the change is not arbitrary, and I’m not crazy thinking it’s not really a word. Meanwhile, I have given up recreational complaining for Lent. It’s
It snowed again this past week and honestly, I’m over it. Though I did make use of my fresh stock of Eagle Brand for snow ice cream, because if there’s enough snow, why wouldn’t you? It’s been a week for project management, both at work and on the book production front. I have commissioned a
It is done. “Household Lights” is finished and off to beta, at a hair over 50k words. Feels like it took forever, but I suppose start to finish it only took a couple of months. I’m rather pleased with it; or I would be if I wasn’t just ready to plotz right now. I’ve taken
